Getting back in the running saddle

Been having a lot of difficulty with runs recently, stopping after 10 mins to catch my breath before running again then only for a further 5mins before the same again.

So it was back to Laura week 9 and yes it works!!!!

I am back now runnng 40 mins (6km) non stop & feeling good again.

Looking forward to my runs instead of dreading them.

Aim now is to get back up to 10km, but no rush.

Laura to the rescue! ;) Glad it worked and you will be back at 10k in no time I'm sure.



glad to hear you are getting back on track and feeling better about your running. As you said, no rush. Enjoy the journey :-)


It's very reassuring to hear Laura's voice again, isn't it? I think it's the mental conditioning - you know you did it the first time so you know you can again! 40 minutes is great - all the best with the push back up to 10k :)
